As I read, I became pleasantly surprised to learn that his book was not at all a shot at redemption, nor was it a grand attempt at a sweeping apology to the world. It was simply an honest, heartfelt, deep, clear, exposed, mature acceptance for what happened combined with a clearly responsible stance about what happened, and why. It took tremendous courage to write what he did and in the end the reader is left with the understanding that, if the real truth be known, we ALL have a dark side to our lives, the majority of us are just very, very lucky we go a lifetime without having that side exposed and played out on a international stage.
Finally, you realize that this man owned up to his huge mistake, accepted his punishment without a flinch and went on to make the best of a situation, never losing sight of what was really the most important in all of this: his two beautiful little girls, for which his deep love shines throughout both books.
As a side note, Dina's book is equally as excellent and worth reading. Both of these people are of the highest caliber. Those who can call either one of them their friend should feel blessed.
